The release came eleven days after the twenty-nine Chinese construction workers were taken hostage.

On January the 28th, a Chinese-run construction site was attacked by Sudanese rebels on the border with neighbouring South Sudan. The militants, from Sudan’s People’s Liberation Movement-North, abducted 29 of the 47 Chinese employees at the camp.

The other 18 managed to escape. Among them, one was shot dead. The hostages were freed after a rescue operation by the Chinese and Sudanese governments.
